Just when we thought we had finally eschewed all reason for live TV, last night's broadcast of the Grammys made us glad we slogged through all those Pepsi commercials and Justin Timberlake sponsorships. Not for the ceremony itself, but for the debut of a brand new trailer for Disney's Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie as the hottest Disney villain since Hades.
Angie stuns as the Sleeping Beauty villain in a horned headpiece, green CGI flames, and a collar higher ... Read More

After several delays, Lana Del Rey’s highly anticipated short film Tropico has been released, and it does not disappoint. Featuring Lana Del Rey and Shaun Ross, Tropico begins with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and chronicles their descent into crime and poverty in Los Angeles after eating the forbidden fruit.
Tropico, essentially three connected music videos, isn’t necessarily a major creative shift for the songstress. She is known for her ... Read More

Do you ever get sick of hearing about Beyoncé’s sex appeal, or reading a paragraph long description of Lana Del Rey’s lips? You’re not the only one. While feminists have often disparaged the physical representation of women in the media, it seems that journalistic coverage, particularly magazine profiles, might be just as superficial and ultimately detrimental. Carly Lewis recently dissected how male writers cover famous women, often writing profiles ... Read More
Despite the fact that she only just released the four-minute long trailer yesterday, Lana Del Rey’s video for “National Anthem,” featuring A$AP Rocky, was released this morning- and it's definitely interesting. Directed by Anthony Mandler, the video features Lana playing both Marilyn Monroe AND Jackie Onassis while A$AP plays JFK in what appears to be a live-action instagram reel. Whether it has you bleeding red, white, and blue or ready to move ... Read More

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's annual Costume Institute benefit gala is unofficially one of fashion's biggest nights - Ralph Lauren declares it the "Super Bowl of fashion." A-listers, armed with their $25,000 tickets, came together Monday night in their most adventurous outfits to make an impression and celebrate fashion as an art at the Vogue-sponsored event. And while some of the sartorial choices on Monday shone, many fell flat, and some were just perplexing. ... Read More

Everyone and their mothers have an opinion, it seems, on Lana Del Rey. We here at BUST have blogged about her twice in the last month alone. (That’s actually a small number if you consider how many times her name has come up in conversation around the office.) The controversy over her is passionate, fascinating—and completely unnecessary. When I hear people getting up in arms about her sex appeal, her body modifications (lip injections, anyone?), or ... Read More
Let January 31, 2012 be known as the day that it happened: the day that Born to Die (out now on Interscope) finally dropped. After months of furious Internet opining, illegal downloads of leaked tracks, tons of grainy live footage, and one questionable Saturday Night Live performance, we now have an entire record of moody, lilting pop songs with which to rightfully judge Lana Del Rey. So what is the verdict?
It is—wait for it—not that bad. Some ... Read More

Ok, I’m gonna duck and cover here, and say I don’t hate Lana Del Rey. Maybe I don’t care enough to have such strong feelings, but I’m truly perplexed by the deep hatred people have for her. Even here in the BUST office, Team Lana only comprises about 30 percent of the staff. You’d think she’d murdered kittens while wearing an NRA tube top. Look, she’s no Adele in the singing department, and yes, I object to a 24-year-old ... Read More
